Khulna: A sexagenarian man was killed and five people were injured in a clash between two feuding groups at Chagladah village in Terokhada upazila on Monday night over establishing supremacy.

The deceased was identified as Oliar Rahman Kazi, 60, of the village.

Quoting locals, police said Oliar and Sakir Fakir of the village had long been at loggerheads over establishing their control in the locality.

As a sequel to the enmity, Oliar’s supporters beat Sakir on Monday afternoon.

When the news spread around, Sakir’s followers, numbering 40/50, swooped on the house of Oliar at night, triggering a clash.

A chase and counter-chase took place during the melee that left six people, including Oliar, injured.

Oliar was rushed to Terokhada Upazila Health Complex where doctors referred him to Khulna Medical College Hospital. He, however, died on the way to the hospital at about 11 pm.

The supporters of Sakir also vandalised the shop of Alamgir, a supporter of Oliar, and looted valuables during the incident.

A case was filed with Terokhada Police Station in this connection.

Harendranath Sarkar, officer-in-charge of the police station, said Sakir Fakir is an outlawed party member and he is accused in 11 cases.
